Putting government between people & their doctors

That’s one of the talking pointfather-franks you’ll see over and over again as the slatternly GOP and its private insurance pimps ramp up their campaign against health care reform in the USA.  The “public option” is bad because it supposedly puts government bureaucrats between people and their doctors.  But as always with right-wing hypocrites, the evil of putting government between people and their doctors is somewhat context-dependent.

Fair and Balanced Fox News recently gave anti-abortion radical Father Frank Pavone (a celibate male who’s disturbingly obsessed with womens’ reproductive issues, as well as BFF of domestic terrorist Randall Terry) a platform on their “Live Desk” show, where he fumed about the “abortion lobby” highjacking health care reform:

Pavone, a primo member of the anti abortion lobby said “let’s not let the abortion lobby hijack” the bill.  […]  He claimed that people “are outraged” (I guess the padre isn’t aware of the outrage in pro-choice circles about how the anti choicers are, once again, trying to limit a woman’s right to an abortion.) He made the specious point that “Americans don’t want” the “legitimate” debate about health care to include abortion. (Memo to Pavone: You speak for yourself and co-religionists. You don’t speak for the rest of us!) He added that the American public wants “more reasonable restrictions on abortions.”

More reasonable restrictions“:  and we all know what Pavone’s idea of a  “reasonable restriction” is — a total ban.  In other words, putting government bureaucrats between people and their doctors.  But I guess that’s okay as long as the people are women and the doctors are Ob-Gyns.

    The REAL Hunter….Not the fake halfwit….LOL.
    Dear Mr President
    (hope that link works)
    last para…
    So, Mr. President, I write to you with this demand: we are not a socialist country, one which believes the health of its citizens should come without the proper profit-loss determinations. I believe that my healthcare decisions should be between me, my insurance company plan, my insurance company’s list of approved doctors I am allowed to see and treatments I am allowed to get, my insurance company’s claims department, the insurance company doctors who have never met me, spoken to me or even personally looked at my files, my own preexisting conditions, my insurance company’s crack cost-review and retroactive cancellation and denial squads, my insurance company’s executives and board of directors, my insurance company’s profit requirements, the shareholders, my employer, and my doctor.

    Memo to “Father” Pavone: Then why the FUCK are YOU bringing abortion into the debate? Don’t you have some child-fucking priests to protect from legal prosecution?
